Formatt Hitech ProStop IRND filer flare - what is acceptable?
  • I've just received Formatt Hitech ProStop 4 stops IRND for my matte box and noticed heavy orange flares when sun directly hits the filter. Even though flares are normal to some extent, I would like to know your opinion if this example is still acceptable (currently I don't have many different filters to compare the results). Lens without filter has few flares with minimal color shift.

  • Forgot to mention that both frames were shot with filter, but in the second one matte box shades the sun rays.

  • Acceptable
